Sherlock is back! The consulting detective is coming to Ilford for one night only in a new investigation.

Sherlock Holmes and The Crimson Cobbles is a laugh-a-minute pastiche of Conan Doyle’s Victorian super-sleuth, and will be performed at the Kenneth More Theatre, Oakfield Road, Ilford, on Friday, September 29.

Holmes and Watson are called upon to investigate the Whitechaep murders that are sending shockwaves through London. When the evidence points to only one possible and inconceivable conclusion about the identity of Jack the Ripper, is the world’s greatest detective prepared to believe the unbelievable?

The Theatre Chipping Norton is touring the world premiere of the show with Alasdair Buchan as Sherlock, Ben Tolley as Dr Watson and Neal Craig as Mrs Hudson, Inspector Lestrade and pretty much everyone else.

It is suitable for ages 12-plus. Tickets are £16 from the box office, 020 8553 4466.
